Promise of Life Network's mission is to honor Christ by empowering mothers to choose life, educating individuals and families about healthy relationships, and providing medical services, material assistance, and spiritual support. We provide local families with pregnancy testing, ultrasound scans, STD testing and treatment, and well women exams. We also provide parenting education and material support to families with children ages three and under. Further, we provide healthy relationships education to students in local public schools. In the last three years, we have begun providing life-affirming help to women worldwide. All of our services are provided free of charge to individuals in need.

Programs Supported by Your Donations
The two programs that will benefit most from donations are our Alpha Omega Center (medical) and our New Beginnings (parenting) divisions.
When a young woman is facing an unexpected pregnancy, she often finds herself unsure of her next steps. Alpha Omega Center provides the information and encouragement she needs to choose life for her child. Our team stays in touch with the mother throughout her pregnancy to ensure that she is able to access health care, social services, or other resources to have a healthy pregnancy and delivery. 95% of at-risk mothers choose life after meeting with our client advocates and receiving an ultrasound scan.
Parents, caretakers, and guardians are also able to enroll in our New Beginnings parenting program. This program is available to expectant parents and families with children under age four. Families attend weekly one-on-one parenting classes tailored to fit their needs and, in exchange, earn needed items for their children. Families are able to choose the items they would like for their child from our Parents’ Shop. In order to ensure that every family can access the help they need we provide parenting lessons both in person at one of our five offices and virtually.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
As prices at the gas pump and the grocery store continue to rise we are finding more and more families in need of help with basic items like diapers, wipes, and formula. Our desire as an organization is to help any family in need, and in order to do that it is necessary for us to expand our parenting program and add a new staff member. This year, we partnered with Newton Financial Services in Mercer and placed a parenting location inside their business. Further, the costs of basic supplies, utilities, and other items are rising. This causes our overhead costs to increase along with the need for our services.
